Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Are you a Volunteer or Friends Group member who fundraises for your archive service? Or would you like to start thinking about it?


Following the success of the Fundraising for Archives event for Friends and volunteers in December 2016, we are now responding to demand and offering a new opportunity for Friends and Volunteers from across the archive sector to attend a workshop on fundraising in Manchester.

This is a chance for Friends and volunteers from different services to come together, share their experiences and hear about fundraising best practice from peers who have been successful at generating income for their archive.

This is very much an action-packed day with lunch and refreshments provided. All are welcome, and a representative from the archive service itself is very welcome to come alongside their Friends and/or volunteers.


The session will include:

  • Lancashire Archives and the Friends of Lancashire Archives discussing how they recruited Friends group members with new skills and ensured their governance was fit for the future

  • Cumbria Archive Service and Friends of Cumbria Archive Service sharing their collaborative working

  • Wigan & Leigh Archives sharing how volunteers perform the vital role of advocate for their service

  • An introduction to Charity Commission guidance for governance of Friends groups by Brabners

  • A practical workshop on advocating for your archive service

  • A discussion forum to share your experiences, challenges and ideas with fellow Friends and volunteers around advocacy and fundraising

  • An opportunity to speak with the Fundraising for Archives team about what fundraising support and training is available to Friends and volunteers


Your place at this event is fully-funded by the Heritage Lottery funded Fundraising for Archives programme.

We look forward to seeing you there!
